Bible: Exodus 15:4-18

15:4 The chariots of Pharaoh 1  and his army he has thrown into the sea,

and his chosen 2  officers were drowned 3  in the Red Sea.

15:5 The depths have covered them, 4 

they went down to the bottom 5  like a stone.

15:6 Your right hand, O Lord, was majestic 6  in power,

your right hand, O Lord, shattered the enemy.

15:7 In the abundance of your majesty 7  you have overthrown 8 

those who rise up against you. 9 

You sent forth 10  your wrath; 11 

it consumed them 12  like stubble.

15:8 By the blast of your nostrils 13  the waters were piled up,

the flowing water stood upright like a heap, 14 

and the deep waters were solidified in the heart of the sea.

15:9 The enemy said, ‘I will chase, 15  I will overtake,

I will divide the spoil;

my desire 16  will be satisfied on them.

I will draw 17  my sword, my hand will destroy them.’ 18 

15:10 But 19  you blew with your breath, and 20  the sea covered them.

They sank 21  like lead in the mighty waters.

15:11 Who is like you, 22  O Lord, among the gods? 23 

Who is like you? – majestic in holiness, fearful in praises, 24  working wonders?

15:12 You stretched out your right hand,

the earth swallowed them. 25 

15:13 By your loyal love you will lead 26  the people whom 27  you have redeemed;

you will guide 28  them by your strength to your holy dwelling place.

15:14 The nations will hear 29  and tremble;

anguish 30  will seize 31  the inhabitants of Philistia.

15:15 Then the chiefs of Edom will be terrified, 32 

trembling will seize 33  the leaders of Moab,

and the inhabitants of Canaan will shake.

15:16 Fear and dread 34  will fall 35  on them;

by the greatness 36  of your arm they will be as still as stone 37 

until 38  your people pass by, O Lord,

until the people whom you have bought 39  pass by.

15:17 You will bring them in 40  and plant them in the mountain 41  of your inheritance,

in the place you made 42  for your residence, O Lord,

the sanctuary, O Lord, that your hands have established.

15:18 The Lord will reign forever and ever!
